Post BlackBerry O.S. Open to Hacker Attacks??

Interesting article today:

The security model of that BlackBerry on your hip isn't holding up very well to third-party scrutiny. Phones can be manipulated to launch TCP backdoors, TCP scans, HTTP backdoors and infostealers, and spyware-type call monitoring

Thoughts and opinions? Interesting this is just coming out now.
